Accelerated Exposure of Automotive Exterior Materials Using a Controlled Irradiance Air-Cooled Xenon-Arc Apparatus

2012-11-19
CURRENT
J2019_201211
This SAE Standard specifies the operating procedures for a controlled irradiance, air-cooled xenon-arc apparatus used for the accelerated exposure of various automotive exterior materials. The sample preparation, test durations, and performance evaluation procedures are covered in material specifications of the different automotive manufacturers.

Test for Chip Resistance of Surface Coatings

2012-10-23
CURRENT
J400_201210
This SAE Recommended Practice covers a laboratory procedure for testing and evaluating the resistance of surface coating to chipping by gravel impact. The test is designed to reproduce the effect of gravel or other media striking exposed paint or coated surfaces of an automobile and has been correlated with actual field results. The specific intent of the test is to evaluate organic surface coatings or systems on flat test panels; however, It may be possible to extend this type of testing to finished parts or other types of materials such as anodized aluminum or plated plastics if the results are interpreted with respect to the limitations and intent implied by the original testing procedures and rating system. This document may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This document does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use.

Felts - Wool and Part Wool

2012-08-24
CURRENT
J314_201208
This SAE Standard identifies chemical/mechanical properties, thickness, width, mass, and other requirements recommended for felts (refer to Tables 1 and 2). It was developed with the cooperation of the Standardization Committee of the Felt Association, Inc., and in accordance with the ASTM tests indicated in the document. The commercial trade designations of the more commonly used grades of automotive felts are given along with complete specifications and tolerances for thickness, mass, wool content, chemical and physical requirements, color, and width. General information, recommended uses, etc., are published in Appendix A as a guide in the selection of felts for particular uses, but the requirements for each application should be taken into consideration in making final selections.

Optical Imaging Evaluation of Impact Damage Resistance Testing on Exterior Finishes

2011-05-26
CURRENT
J2661_201105
This SAE Recommended Practice covers a procedure for evaluating plastic and multiple-layer coatings exposed to gravelometer testing (as defined in SAE J400) with an optical imaging and analysis system. The intent of the procedure is to detect, count and characterize instances of damage in the coated surface that fracture the top coat layer or penetrate through multiple layers of the coating system. It may be possible to extend this methodology of coating damage evaluation to specimens that have undergone test procedures or exposures that produce similar, discrete damage sites in the coating system. If so applied, evaluation results must be interpreted with respect to the limitations and intent implied by the original evaluation procedure and its associated rating system, if applicable.

Accelerated Exposure of Automotive Interior Trim Components Using a Controlled Irradiance Water Cooled Xenon-Arc Apparatus

2008-01-11
CURRENT
J1885_200801
This test method specifies the operating procedures for a controlled irradiance, water cooled xenon-arc apparatus used for the accelerated exposure of various automotive interior trim components. Test durations, as well as any exceptions to the sample preparation and performance evaluation procedures contained in this document, are covered in material specifications of the different automotive manufacturers. This standard is limited to the models of xenon arc test apparatus specified in the Section on Equipment. All other models of xenon arc test apparatus must use SAE J2412 to perform the test conditions specified in SAE J1885. SAE J2412 is the performance standard based on the test parameters of SAE J1885. Use of xenon arc test apparatus to perform SAE J2412 must be agreed upon by contractual parties.
